Sleek and slim radio, with no protruding controls. When introduced, the ICF-7500 represented a fresh styling and refined design. It was a clear departure from other contemporary radios. The designers focused on the ideal projected area ratio for the tuner and speaker. Between these parts, a high-precision joint serves as a design accent and enables the unit to be opened and closed with a single touch. The release bar is another example of a new part incorporated in the design. This radio also made its mark in history as the first unit envisioned for use during work commutes.
